a truly excellent video for face-mask making, not something I would have thought I'd be recommending two weeks ago
"the times they are a-changin'"
3 down 7 more to go
I do not have to explain about the shortage, so I won't
sewing these on the Singer. I'm making these face masks for the care-givers who are looking after our parents down South....we are not living in lock-down, yet! but we are advised to travel as little as possible. I have just got my two boys back home and do not intend to leave them.
Everyone has his or her story of woe these days.
I do find solace and joy in many things; the house sparrow in me is content to be at home. Fortunately we both work from home, although the tidying-up part of my small business has come to a complete standstill. Our daily routine therefore is much the same as usual....apart from having the boys back.
Our eldest managed to get back from Kenya, just in time as it turns out. We picked him up at the airport Sunday evening. He has been living in a tiny village in the Maasai Mara for the past six weeks and had intended to stay on there till June, doing research, fieldwork and writing his thesis. We had plans to visit him. All postponed, although he will be able to finish his BSc here.
Our youngest son decided today he too wants to return to the fold and continue his internship long-distance, preferring our company to empty student digs. He lives in Noord-Brabant, the region first affected by Covid-19, and as he had a cold he had to self-isolate for over a week after which he had hopes of returning to work.
By then everything had changed. The entire country was starting to realise the enormity of what was actually happening and we are constantly readjusting to the new reality.

Spring and sunshine, bright blue skies, flowers and green shoots
Spring is the time to feel alive and grateful! xo
thank you for the video ... it made me feel I might be able
not a pink I would have chosen Liz, but now that it's here I love it, it brightens up our life in so many ways.....the video is simply the best for me, I loved her calm matter-of-fact voice and manner, soothing in the midst of turmoil xx stay safe and well
'essential workers' you must be so proud Dee (I would be) I get great comfort from knowing two young men, roughly the same age as your and our boys, who have contracted Covid-19, been quite ill and have fully recovered! the optimist in me always looks forward, especially after the burn-out, having decided to look out for joy and what I can give others in that respect xx stay safe and well
haha, your comment ended up in an older post, so I've re-posted it here Michelle; now that the boys are safe, relatively speaking, I feel calm! xx stay safe and well, and indoors! the news from NYC is disconcerting and alarming
Stay safe all of you and thank you for your inspiring example of how to just do what is needed and face each day.
I sincerely hope your relatives stay and are safe, that you are....xxx
